Yesterday, Dennis Kucinich told Sean Hannity that striking Syria without prior Congressional authorization would be an impeachable offense. Sean’s eyes lit up and his voice began to drip honey. President Obama’s GOP critics have wanted to impeach him for years and recently began vocally looking for an excuse. Syria could be that excuse. The next eighteen months could become a partisan wrangle in which nothing else is done. The 2014 elections could be contested mainly over maintaining a GOP House with sufficient votes to impeach and a GOP Senate with sufficient votes to convict, a first in American history. If that happens, Joe Biden would become President, and he would pick someone to become Vice President until January, 2017. If he chose Hillary, would the Senate vote to confirm her or would they demand that she pledge not to be a candidate in 2016?
